8:45 am
happen to her. hillary clinton and tim cape will appear tomorrow at the annual 11th district labor day parade, ending at luke easter park. ohio has 88 counties, yes, but for clinton and the democrats, it comes down to what they're able to do here. >> and you maintained the bases and get the turnout the way obama did in 2012, we're going to go democrat. >> reporter: that is a know because of the inroads trump made this year with the labor community and not the unions but rank and file. it's one of the for politics and seeking support. and in the year that is 2016, nothing is certain. >> and this is one of the votes that was reliably democrat and is up for grabs because of what trump did to laborerrings when it comes to trade and immigration et cetera. >> reporter: trump capitalizing on clinton's comments. >> and we're going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business. >> reporter: that is where trump told me he sees
8:46 am
business, the steel workers and manufacturing is going to leave and bring it back. >> reporter: and to the rescue, the strongest victory was the auto industry bailout that came in the early days of obama's first term. as a result, a 2012 campaign was a victory lap. >> and 15,000 new jobs again back since reorganizing. >> reporter: and a message to auto workers in cleveland. >> he had no idea what in america. he has no idea that, in fact, one thing as we know in this country. give average americans an even chance and they have never, never, never let their country down. not one single solitary time. >> reporter: they begin the unusual process of lobbying their own. and they didn't feel they would have to do. >> unlike a lot of people, i
8:47 am
last thanksgiving but he's still here. >> reporter: look for the focus to remain high as polls here in ohio show the race continues to be tight. and they had a tide while the real clear politics average has clinton up four points. if donald trump loses to clinton, the republican race to 2020 would begin almost immediately and some would say it has. governor john kasich started off the week in a familiar place, campaigning f new hampshire and not for himself this time, but republican governor hopeful christopher nunu. and many believing 2020 can't be far from his mind. >> he's playing the inside game, collecting chips, people supporting him and he's providing support for them and keeping a staff on from the campaign and quietly build the network and continue into 2020. >> i and where is that more crucial than in new hampshire? the rnc rules committee decided
8:48 am
status in four years, a state where kasich hold over a hundred up tos and had a formidable ground game. last month, i asked kasich about this. >> and because of the ground work is delayed when you look at the state like new hampshire. and you met 2/3 of the people. would you consider another run? >> well, that is like asking someone once they finish a marathon, you know, meet them at the finish line. are you going to run another one? i'm not shutting my political operation down or close doors. i am decisions. >> reporter: what he is doing is keeping the proup, writing an op-ed on forms and another last week for the new york times and how to fix the nation's welfare system. and it took two years to be focused on making sure the ohio story is one he can run. >> and this idea of the economic model of ohio, the social model of ohio, being what he would support and want to see happen nationally. >> reporter: part of kasich's ohio story, of course, is that
8:49 am
into a $2 billion surplus. the flip side of that is a lot of cities will say that money came out of their pockets. the end result for cleveland. the first time in 35 years, voters will be asked to approve this november an income tax hike. cleveland is balancing the budget through creative financing and this is after the state balance is in 2011 and cutting the money it sends to local governments. for cleveland, that was a $35 state passed collective bargaining reforms to get some money back. at the time, it doesn't work that way. >> and if he was in -- it was in full effect, it would not make up $35.7 million. believe me. >> and that can continue to grow. for the first time in 35 years, cleveland is seeking to raise income tax from 2 to 2 1/2% and an income of $50,000 that would
8:50 am
around $83 million. money that would offset a pending deficit, eliminate the need for layoffs and cutting the city services while making the city's neighbors right for more investment. >> and that means you need greater services and better roads the. you need more housing inspections. you need faster codes and ps to come forward. >> reporter: the greater cleveland partnership studied the matter and concluded the increase was the only way to make that happen, building on momentum started. people have to see every neighborhood in our community being as attractive and interesting for them as tremont or ohio city or university circle. and that is what we think the tax can help to achieve. >> and this is an interesting stat. 87% of the city's income tax is paid for by workers who don't live in the city and, therefore, won't have a vote this november. i'm john kosich. enjoy your sunday. and thank you, john. that income tax question will
